Gillian no longer likes baths. It is a heartbreak, really. She used to run & squeal with delight when she heard the water running. She would bounce up & down as we tried to undress her, eager to jump in. She would splash & play & swim. Now, I can't even get her to sit in the water. She screams, terrified of the thought.
We tried giving her a shower - maybe she would like that? It freaked her out. Not a chance.
What makes the sprinkler so much better? Freezing cold water? Being outside? Not being told to do it?
